** The Literature/SherlockHolmes crossover ''All-Consuming Fire'', as well as multiple Holmesian references, features an appearance by ''Literature/TheLostWorld'''s Lord John Roxon, and references to Literature/ProfessorChallenger, Franchise/FuManchu, and Creator/KimNewman's Literature/DiogenesClub agent Charles Beauregard. It's also one of several New Adventures to have references to the Franchise/CthulhuMythos.

* CoversAlwaysLie: ''Just War'' has the deliberately dishonest kind of lying cover, with the blurb making a big deal about the Doctor arriving in World War II to find the Germans occupying English soil, and assuring the reader that this is not an alternate universe and there will be no reset button at the end. It turns out the blurb is using deliberately obtuse language to talk about the historical occupation of the Channel Islands.

** On his return appearance in ''The Room With No Doors'', Joel autmatically responds to the question "What do you want?" with a forceful "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSD75pPsquM Never ask that question!]]", followed by an embarrassed retraction and a more serious answer when the person he's talking to completely fails to get the reference.

* HandCannon: Dekker, the HardboiledDetective in ''Blood Harvest'', packs a Colt 1911. "Some people say the old 1911 Model Army Colt Automatic is big and clumsy and noisy, and I guess it is. But hit a man anywhere with the slug from a .45 and he'll go down and stay down." This gets a MeaningfulEcho near the end when he establishes that even a vampire will be severely inconvenienced.

Several AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho episodes, sometimes marked "Side Step", take place in the ''New Adventures'' continuity. In 2012, they began adapting pre-existing novels (from this and the Literature/VirginMissingAdventures) to audio too, beginning with Creator/PaulCornell's "Love And War".
